For all the reasons presented here and more, the Returning Officer can and should use their power to maintain the spirit of our democracy. The power to allow our democracy to function properly rests solely in the hands of the Returning Officer. In this case, they are well within their rights to make an exception, and since the principles of Judicial Precedent do not apply to the Returning Officer, there should be no worry of compromising our system.

What more needs to be said? The Greens are literally green, they are bound to make mistakes with all the unnecessary complexities in the current electoral system. A couple minutes or even an hour or two shouldn't be of any consequence especially when the deadline followed a weekend, which is traditionally two consecutive non-business days.
